Sleep apnoea: Jaw correction stops nocturnal breathing interruptions

March 26, 2019 | Europe | News

MUNICH, Germany: Nightly breathing disorders, or sleep apnoea syndrome (SAS), are widespread. According to new studies, 14 per cent of all men and 7 per cent of women suffer from it. If the cause is a receding tongue, a surgical displacement of the upper and lower jaw can effectively stop the suffering. At a press conference at the 136th Congress of the German Society of Surgery (DGCH), experts explained for whom the operation is considered a health insurance benefit and why examinations should absolutely be carried out before the operation. The annual conference is taking place from 26 to 29 March 2019 in Munich under the motto "Full steam ahead - with heart, hand and mind!"
